National Dish Of Malaysia

Nasi Lemak is considered to be the National Dish of Malaysia. The dish is made of rice that is soaked in coconut milk and steamed. This is served with a sambal, anchovies, peanuts, chicken, a fried egg and fresh cucumber slices. The nasi lemak is neatly packaged in a banana leaf and steamed.

The dish is popularly eaten as a breakfast dish and was even voted one of the healthiest breakfasts in the world. It seems to have a lot of spices but even a lot of goodness. Maybe the Malays know more than the westerners wolfing down bacon and eggs for breakfast.
